This man meant more to me than he knew.
This man lived his life to the fullest.
This man always had a smile on his face.
This man treated me like family from the moment I met him.
This man was a giant in his field.
This man could tell a story like no other.
This man knew how to have fun.
This man was always whistling.
This man loved kids.
This man loved whitewater.
This man loved flying.
One of the greatest privileges in my life is to be able to say this man loved me, and I loved him back.
This man was my father-in-law. He passed away suddenly on April 18. I am still in shock, and I think it will take awhile for me to believe he is really gone. He had an amazing impact on my life, for that matter, everyone who knew him.
Rest in Peace, Ted Hatch. 1933-2010.
